Rafael van der Vaart / Sylvie van der Vaart (Tottenham Hotspur)

With Rafael van der Vaart the new darling of the White Hart Lane faithful it seems remiss of us not to celebrate the fact by introducing Mrs Van der Vaart to the masses. The uber-WAG par excellence has travelled with her hubby to the Big Smoke and is the perfect replacement for dear old Abbey Clancy, who we're reluctantly granting a sabbatical on the grounds she's expecting her first child. Over the summer, in the WAGs and Stags World Cup in South Africa, Sylvie van der Vaart and her beau stormed their way to the final only to have to settle for a silver medal as Pablo Mouche and Luli Fernandez did what Diego couldn't manage in delivering gold to Argentina. With Rafael proving to be more than affable in his post-match interviews, he does a lot as he's invariably voted man of the match, and Sylvie as beautiful as they come, expect Spurs to build on the sterling work done previously by a Crouch/Clancy partnership. The van der Vaarts have the type of WAG/Stag credentials mere mortals can only dream of, with their wedding beamed out to an adoring Dutch public, live on SBS. How romantic. All they needed was Martin Tyler to exclaim 'and it's live' and the day would have been the fairytale they'd always dreamed of.

Roger Johnson / Melissa Johnson (Birmingham City)

New buck Melissa has certainly put in the spadework in her bid to be crowned queen WAG having released a WAGs Workout DVD with fellow footballer belles Nicola T and Lisa Munday. The office swears by it. Melissa's website informs that through her modelling she has 'appeared on TV shows such as This Morning, Poor Little Rich Girls, Footballers Wives, Midsummer Murders, Dream Team and Test the Nation'. We'd rather be stuck in a lift with Vernon Kay without access to a gun than sit through that lot but Roger seems happy enough. The pair, who wed in 2007, are childhood sweethearts and with Melissa quite the looker and Roger widely regarded as being an all round good egg, the Blues duo might just cause the odd upset this season.
